Program Overview

Ninos Sordos de las Americas is a nonprofit association based in Lima Peru, whose primary purpose is to achieve well-being in all areas of development of deaf people. The NISOR school for the Deaf was started in 2015 through private donations and help from the Peruvian Navy by way of scholarships for 5 students. Through the help of linguist, teachers and Deaf staff, educational curriculum is modified and taught in Peruvian Sign Language. In addition, parents are required to learn sign language to communicate with their child in order to remain enrolled in NISOR. Tremendous growth and achievement has been seen in the students who are now able to learn in their native language. WBI partners with NISOR through financial and material support with the goal of starting more NISOR schools throughout Lima.
